Christmas Gift-Giving Traditions
Is the Christmas excitement rising in your house? I’m about as bad as the kids. I love the thrill of thinking up/looking for the perfect gift, wrapping, and the excitement of the littles. I look forward to how the house sparkles and how the tree looks with gifts all piled up under it with the beautiful wrapping! I look forward to the Christmas programs and filling the house with Christmas music with everyone singing along loudly! …and if we are lucky enough to get snow, with no ice!!!!
But which are my very favorite times? Watching the kids get excited about what they are making/giving to everyone else!! eeek! The plans, the sneaking, the wrapping, it’s all too much! Christmas doesn’t have to be full of whining kids, greedy for more and more. Christmas is actually a great time to nurture your kid’s Giving spirit! By building excitement around projects for them to GIVE, it is possible for them to almost forget the excitement of what they will be getting!
